Complex production plants and processes require state of the art professional standards and precision. These requirements will be met in the future by the partnership of VAYU Sense AG, based in Munich and Tel Aviv, and NEUMO GmbH+Co.KG from Knittlingen, Baden-Württemberg. Their common aim: A revolution in fermentation processes control with the innovative VAYU Meter.
Munich, March 2016.
Optimizing yield during fermentation processes is extremely challenging for many industries: Incorrect timing results in waste of resources and lower profits. Biomass concentration is the gold standard for microorganism growth. But measuring biomass can take time and is prone to errors. VAYU Meter enables monitor, control and optimize fermentation-based production processes significantly with local and mobile application, continuously and in real-time. That can reduce the cost of a fermentation event by up to 40 per cent.
VAYU Meter measures, records, and analyzes CO2 levels using its proprietary infrared technology. Highly sensitive and non-intrusive measurements at parts-per-million sensitivity are performed continuously and automatically while the growth matter is in the container. There is no need to open the fermenter or to withdraw samples. The analysis is performed in real-time during the process.
Besides the optimized production and yield, VAYU Meter shortens research and development processes as well and improves capacity utilization of the equipment. And the best thing is that every fermenter can be upgraded with this innovative technology.
VAYU Sense AG has developed and is bringing to market a biological-detection technology. VAYU Meter allows identification of extremely subtle fluctuations in gaseous concentrations at unprecedented parts-per-million sensitivity. Its ability to measure these processes accurately, in real-time, and to deliver results to mobile devices, will positively impact a wide range of industries.
